IS Black EA MT4 – profitable grid robot for Gold

Published: 16.12.2022
Reading time: 17 minutes

IS Black EA is an MT4 robot for trading Gold (XAUUSD) on M1 or M5. The EA uses a grid of orders, but at the same time has a low drawdown (no more than 2%) - this is what attracted my attention. In addition, one cannot fail to note its high profitability, which is demonstrated by the developer on MyFXBook, where the account growth was 322% in less than a week with a drawdown of 2%. And this “goose that lays golden eggs” is sold for only $380 (but here, as always, you can download it absolutely free).

Сharacteristics of the IS Black EA

  • Platform: Metatrader4
  • EA version: 1.0
  • Currency pairs: Gold (XAUUSD)

Trading algorithm

IS Black EA uses a grid of orders and therefore is a potentially dangerous EA with a high risk of losing a deposit. Therefore, initially test it on a demo account within 1-2 weeks.

Before you start using this Expert Advisor, you should understand that this is not a long-term tool and you need to constantly "keep your finger on the pulse". The collapse of your account can come the very next day. This is unlikely, but possible. For example, I never managed to get a stable backtest lasting more than six months. This must be taken into account.

Risk=0; 01.2021-04.2021:backtest-is-black-ea-0-4-month21

Risk=0.01; 01.2021-04.2021:backtest-is-black-ea-001-4-month21

To achieve 99.9% of the  modeling quality used TDS 2

As you can see from the test results, I was not able to get a low drawdown of 2%, as shown in the author's monitoring in MyFxBook. Which, of course, suggests the idea of the conscientiousness of the developer and the real performance of the Expert Advisor. In my tests, this parameter reaches more than 77%, which is very dangerous.


The few input parameters of the EA are simple and you only need to use the preset that comes with the kit.

A few recommendations

Of course, in relation to Black EA, all the same recommendations that I give for other advisers will apply - these are:

  • Timely fixation and withdrawal of the profit earned by the adviser in order to prevent the loss of all money in the account.
  • Do not invest money that you are not ready to lose, so that later it will not be excruciatingly painful.
  • Do not use aggressive settings that increase the risk of losing your deposit.
  • Use a reliable broker with a low spread.
  • Insure yourself against possible loss of connection with your trading account by installing an advisor on a VPS.
